Making this delicious and healthy snack is very simple but also a rare instance where the recipe is meant to take longer in order to make it easier. Most nuts can burn faster than you can say "What's that smell?"--so these spiced pecans are baked low and slow to avoid any nasty surprises.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Whisk egg white, water, sugar, salt, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and cayenne in a large bowl. Add pecans and stir to coat evenly. Spread in a single layer on the prepared pan.

  • Bake for 30 minutes. Rotate the pan from back to front and continue baking until the nuts are crispy and dry to the touch, about 30 minutes more. Let cool completely on the pan, about 20 minutes. Break apart before serving.


To make ahead: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week.

Equipment: Parchment paper
